|Leg blanks on the right, pile of stretchers on the left.|
|First step was to touch up the blade on the jointer.|
|Next up are traversing passes with the #5. The cambered blade makes quick work of the rough cut surface.|
|Then on to the #7.|
|Checking the edge to make sure its still square.|
|Finally done jointing.|
Today I took the dog out on the bike first thing to wear her out then it was back to the shop.
|Got the router set up to cut the mortises on the legs.|
Then it was on to finishing up the milling for the stretcher stock. I'm not sure whether the thickness planer or the bandsaw were the best addition to the shop this year, but I'm glad I've got both of them.
The final task for the evening was to get the table-saw and bandsaw set up to cut the tenons. Test boards fit well but I'm still not sure about cutting the tenon cheeks on the band saw. I may end up putting the dado stack on the table saw even though it doesn't leave quite as clean a surface.
That's all for tonight.
